Prayer Letter

Bible Lessons
Vladamir has still not finished his Bible lessons. We only have one lesson left, but it seems like there have been many hindrances to him coming. Pray that God would remove any hindrances so that he can finish his lessons. Most importantly, please pray that he would truly understand salvation and get saved.
A few Fridays ago we met a lady named Tamara who was searching for the truth. She came to our house the next day and talked with us from 8 AM until 3 PM. She then bowed her head and received Jesus Christ as her Saviour. She has been faithful to every service since then and is continually praying for her son's salvation. I will be going to visit her son in prison November 20th. His name is Ruselan.
In the lst letter we mentioned Lela, Kristina's mom. She has not started Bible lessons yet but we would still like to meet with her.
Our church seems to have grown overnight. Not only has Tamara been faithfully coming, but also Ala, Boris, Yuri and Kristina. Yuri and Kristina are still living together but Yuri has openly admitted that it is sin and expressed the need for them to get married. Please pray that God will continue to work upon their hearts.
Since the time that Jessica talked with Tatiana, she has not come back to church. When we left her she was still very friendly but since then has gone out of her way to avoid us. We are still praying for her.
Witnessing Opportunities
God has continued to give me opportunities to witness in Russian, especially with the men working on our house. They all seemed very open to the Gospel but still no one has come to church.
Also, many of you have asked about Pasha. He is still working with me as a translator and he still talks with me about the Bible, but he still rejects God.
House & Registration
We have finally moved into our house in the village. There are still a few things needing to be done before winter, but we are enjoying our new home.
We are also working on getting registered at our new home as our registration runs out on December 24th. Pry that there will be no problems. We have recently heard that it might be possible for us to get a 3 year registration, which would be a huge blessing.
Family & Health
Both of the girls are growing up fast and are both healthy. Jessica was better for about 2 months after she came back from America but recently her coughing has started again. She is also having some breathing difficulties. Right now it isn't as bad as before but please pray that God will help us find a solution.

I'm anxious to read on if you got that 3 year registration.
